Naked (Netflix Trailer)

Mm mm mm. Why not have sexy azz Regina Hall waking up in the raw on the elevator though… because equal rights!! We’re here for you, Regina. WE support your right to bare(ness), even if Hollywood doesn’t (haaaa)! For seriously though, this trailer is like that Bill Murray “Groundhog’s Day” movie mashed into everyone’s worst wake up at school in your draws (or less) nightmare. What is it with that dream anyway?

When Rob Anderson (Marlon Wayans), a charming man-child, arrives in Charleston the night before he is about to marry the woman of every man’s dreams, Megan Swope (Regina Hall), he hasn’t written his vows, learned the steps for the first dance, or even remembered to bring the ring. Instead of taking care of his responsibilities, Rob goes out for a night on the town with his best man (Jonathan Todd Jackson). Then something unexpected happens… Rob wakes up naked in an elevator with no idea how he got there. When the elevator doors open Rob is shocked to find that it’s late in the morning and he has only one hour to get to the church or miss his own wedding. He tries desperately to get to the chapel, streaking through a city marathon, stealing clothes, avoiding capture by local police, a near death confrontation with a vicious motorcycle gang, and many other obstacles only to find himself waking up in the elevator again and again. Some unknown force has conspired to make Rob live this hour repeatedly until he finally grows up and becomes the man that his amazing fiancée deserves to marry. On Netflix August 11.

Netflix is winning. Ought to be hilarious!

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul (Teaser Trailer #1)

Haa! Looks like some fun for the family, esp. if you have young’uns in your movie viewing audience. “Diary of a Wimpy Kid: The Long Haul” is set to hit theaters right as kids are getting set to hit the schoolhouse doors for the summer. Trailer #1 in the tagline implies that there will be a Trailer #2… hopefully meaning the movie is so loaded with zaniness that the funny is not poured just into snips in the teasers.

Greg convinces his family to take a road trip to attend his great grandmother’s 90th birthday as a cover for what he really wants: to attend a nearby gamer convention. Unsurprisingly, things do not go according to plan and Heffley family antics ensue.
– Movieclips Trailers

Interesting note for folks in Metro Atlanta, esp. on the east side. The moviemakers filmed all around Stone Mountain. Peep and see if you recognize some spots in the trailer spot above.

How Microaggressions Are Majorly Offensive (Video)

Still don’t fully understand what microaggressions are?
Here’s a metaphor you won’t forget!

Ohhh! So that’s what you call it when folks who don’t know any better (or who actually do, but wanna be azzholy-on-the-lowly) poke and pester you with patronizing platitudes that are actually coded putdowns… microaggressions!

You know, like if you are actually surprised that a Black guy, or a ‘blogger’ for that matter, actually knew those words I just used, could onomatopoeically employ them thusly, or even want to comment how surprised you are that I know a sesquipedalian word like ‘onomatopoeically’… Yeah, you’d be one of those microaggressors!

War Machine (Netflix Teaser Trailer)

Dude. Getting that Netflix account (or ‘borrowing’ that sub from someone who loves you) is gonna be the MOVE! Box office beast Will Smith is already doing something for the bingers. Now, monster movie star Brad Pitt with this “War Machine” trailer comes to Netflix?

An absurdist war story for our times, writer-director David Michôd (Animal Kingdom) recreates a U.S. General’s roller-coaster rise and fall as part reality, part savage parody – raising the specter of just where the line between them lies today. His is an exploration of a born leader’s ultra-confident march right into the dark heart of folly. At the story’s core is Brad Pitt’s sly take on a successful, charismatic four-star general who leapt in like a rock star to command NATO forces in Afghanistan, only to be taken down by a journalist’s no-holds-barred exposé.
– Netflix US & Canada

Ha! Feels like some “Ocean’s Eleven” meets “Inglorious Bastards” energy in the trailer above. Just replace any goriness with snarkiness and you’ll get it. Better yet, play the trailer and wait for May like the rest of us.

Look! ‘The President’ Is Reading His Next Batch Of Executive Orders (Video)

Hahaa! Jon Stewart is a FOOL and a half!

Well, no doubt, you’ve heard that President Trump has gotten more accomplished than any other President in history… from Trump… And he did it via executive orders. How appropriate that Colbert had ‘The Donald’ (well, an unreasonable facsimile) to let The Late Show audience in on a batch of ‘special’ executive orders.

Friend of the show Jon Stewart stops by to give Stephen a sneak peek at some executive orders he borrowed off the President’s desk.

Comedy: Aziz Ansari’s Saturday Night Live Opening Monologue (Video)

Epic opening monolog to start an epic episode of SNL. Barely a day after the inauguration of President Donald Trump, they were going IN on him over there. And the first three minutes of this clip: SOLID COMEDIC GOLD!

Keep in the back of your mind: SNL is on NBC… and so is the latest incarnation of The Apprentice, which still credits Trump as executive producer. Just saying.

Eye Candy: Chrissy Teigen (Video)

Ha haaa! Gotta love the way Chrissy Teigen is fine with her fineness. Not really uppity about it; in fact, her funniness & finesse are key to her sexiness. Feel like (were it not for the in love with hubby John Legend thing) she’d be very approachable. And the way she is demonstrating dedication to fitness (and footlong hotdogs with fries) in this bouncy bounce back to pre-baby weight ‘workout’ video; patterned after the old school 20 Minute Workout and Kiana’s Flex Appeal (yeeeeaahh, click those titles for throwback links; and you’re welcome) …wow!

Love this. Reeeally loving Chrissy in this! Hit the jump for some choice freeze frames from this workout, too.

Facebook Isn’t “Free” (Video)

If you’re not paying, you’re not the customer–you’re the product.

You gotta know this. Whether you know already, or not, you GOTTA know this. So, since College Humor put together a palatable way to tell you so, I’m gonna share and let you know…

FACEBOOK ISN’T FREE!

Watch and see how you ‘pay’ for it, because you are not willing to pay for it otherwise. Hey, everything has it’s price. How do you think Zucks got so damned rich? And you could quit Facebook, but good luck escaping Google!

Breaking News On ‘CNN’ (Live From SNL): President-Elect Trump’s Newest Cabinet Appointee Is ‘Walter White’ (Video)

Bryan “Walter White” Cranston getting in on the SNL jabs at President-Elect Donald Trump before the Inauguration. “Walter” (iconic drug kingpin character from the TV drama “Breaking Bad”) knows everything about the DEA, is a big Trump fan, and also wants to ‘make America COOK again.’ HAHAAAAA!

But for real, some of these ‘funny’ cabinet picks that The Donald is making are NOT funny. Mumbling to myself: Leave it alone, O… just… leave it alone.

These picks are not bad. They are alt-good…

(Google ‘alt-right’ if you don’t already get that one.)
